CHI (Conference on Human-Computer Interaction) is the most important annual conference for the international ACM-community (Association for Computing Machinery). For the first time after a long while, it took place in Europe, more specifically Glasgow, Scotland. In reference to the location and the Scottish tradition of Kilts the motto of the conference was ‘Weaving the threads of CHI’: https://chi2019.acm.org/
Within a week, 3.855 participants (!) from research, IT-development, design and economy presented and discussed multiple topics and the latest trends. Dr. Marén Schorch focused her participation on methodological and ethical issues of the HCI-research in sensitive areas of practice, amongst others in the workshops ‘HCI and Aging. Beyond Accessibility’ and ‘Avoiding and Mitigating Ethical Traps in Technocentric Fieldwork’.
